Yeah, but an EE making a one off circuit to execute the task all night doesn't sell cars like a leggy woman in a tight skirt.

A: Most of the models at car shows (even the NY Auto Show) are ugly as ****. Not in the Honey-boo-boo sense, but in the "she looks like a car-show girl" sense. Slutty, overly made-up, and completely out of their natural habitat (an overpriced nightclub.) When I go to check out BMW's newest offerings, I don't want to see a woman who looks like Donald Trump's first wife's dog's hairdresser draped all over it. I want to see Sabine Schmitz.

2: Given the typical attendance, I can guarantee you that a Japanese sexbot would get more attention, and could push the button just as easily.

III: Racecar.

She got up and walked around the car once.

The whole event was pretty weird. Last year they had a big screen playing loops of old classic movie car scenes- Bullitt, LeMans, etc., - and had classic cars on the floor.

This year - no cars present, just 5 women standing on separate pedestals, naked except for underwear bottoms and body paint everywhere else, dancing to music that was way too loud. It was like a night club, except the lights were on, I wasn't drunk and there were dads with their ten year old kids who just wanted to see the new Mustang.

Joe nailed it^

Car show girls are mostly beat. But there were way too many middle aged, overweight men there who love to oogle. Way too many pictures were being taken. The had markings on the floor that said "selfie spot". It was ******* weird.


I did sit back in the ND for the first time since NYShow last year. Ugh, still want badly.

Yeah, it's the same deal at the big NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) show every year in Vegas. It's like IAS, but for radio / television / film equipment; everything from microphones and cable to helicopters and 50' production trailers.

Actually, I think NAB mostly gets the ladies who have aged out of the car-show scene. At Harris, we finally gave up and just started sending lots of the younger and more attractive female employees from the factory to stand around the booth. At least they were capable of intelligently speaking about the product when they weren't busy looking pretty and giving away free ****.

Can anyone confirm the the rear side windows are in fact fake?

They look fake, every time I see them I notice it more, and I don't like..

Look at the reveal video on post 2319 at the 1:12 mark where you see the top go down and you can see structure on the inside where the "windows" are supposed to be.

So you have a grey car which is perfectly camouflaged against weathered asphalt, so it is hard to see and you have worse vision out than an old Camaro and that gives you a car that will end its days very soon in a wrecking yard. Give me a PRHT anytime.

They're fake. Pieces of black plastic.

But who cares? Styling is styling. It'd look super ducky without those fake windows.

I don't think the visibility will be as bad as you think.

I'd happily take this over a PRHT NC I think. The ND just drives sooooooo much better.

Part of me still has me thinking soft top for simplicity... decisions decisions....

I don't know why I was surprised, but the Hiroshima plant is pumping out 124s already. Saw one on the assembly line and about a dozen in the yard waiting to go on a ship. All of them LHD, iirc. The headlights look better in real life, but man is the hood and silver windshield surround ugly.

In case if you were wondering, the souvenir was a plastic folder with a Roadster on it.

I've also saw about 3 NDs in the wild around Hiroshima, also saw a Mk4 Supra with a hilariously huge wide body kit with a massive composite wing. No good pics because it was at night.

Oh yeah, I had the opportunity to sit in the Recaros, but didn't because I knew it would **** me off when I get home.

Turbofan, you're a Mazda salesman right? If so, maybe you can answer this question. Can you "stack" multiple incentives? For instance, since I technically qualify for the military, student, and loyalty discounts would I get all three, or just the single highest one?

Glad I double checked, cuz I was going to give you incorrect information!

Yes, you can stack all 3, at least in my region. Do keep in mind that for the college grad rebate you have to finance (or lease) through Mazda Capital Services.

How about the S plan from the motorsports program? Can you stack it along with the other discounts?

Yes, you can combine plan pricing along with those rebates. Your biggest challenge, however, will be finding a dealer willing to do S Plan pricing. If you have any issue with that, let me know.... I can do it

So what you are saying is when I am ready to buy my ND I should shoot your a pm and purchase from you. Fly out and pick it up and then enjoy the drive back to the east coast?

Default NASA CCR now lists the ND RZ and ND GT3 as legal roll bars for ND

Guys, just saw that the new edition of the NASA CCR has been posted and in it NASA was kind enough to list the approved Blackbird Fabworx roll bar models (which are all the bars we make).

Click the link and scroll to 11.4.7 Roll Bars (p.41) -
https://nasa-assets.s3.amazonaws.com...282/2016.2.pdf

Just in case someone wondered
